The most innocuous looking things on the internet can be the most deadly, take this thread here for instance. While researching dog breeds a popup window appeared before one of our members, along with an ActiveX warning for a movie, and with just a single click of the mouse a trojan made it's self at home. It's not like he is the only one, either.
Of course, in order to get infected you need a working computer; as long as the hard drives referred to in this thread stay broken, you can guarantee the system is 100% protected. Unfortunately, when problems arise in your external storage, you get all the frustration and none of the safety benefits.
